Hi. I used unlimited data for ages and had this option worked properly on galaxy s8, s9, note 10,etc. but in 2022 when using note 20 ultra, I can't download updates without WiFi. What is different now? What can I do?  Many thanks. M.

Go to Settings >>

Search for "Wifi" in the settings search bar >> tap on wifi

Tap on advanced settings then toggle on  "Switch to mobile data automatically" (use mobile data when wi-fi has no internet access.)

Enable this option.

Once enabled, swipe down from the top of the phone and turn off wifi and download the update.

Hi @marcinierz 

 

This is certainly a conundrum which is affecting quite a few owners of different phone's who also reside in different regions / countries. 

I have the Fold³ which allows me to update my phone's software over Mobile Data or Wi-Fi. [ Whichever I choose  ]

My Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra will only update software over Wi-Fi.

It will not let me update over Mobile Data.

This has also been discussed on the forum and on other forums.

I'm in the UK with both phone's purchased direct from Samsung UK.

I've provided feedback to Samsung via the Samsung Members App.

There are some tips people give in some threads but alas none has helped so I have just resorted to waiting till I get home to update my phone's software when it becomes available.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help.

I just downloaded the update with mobile data on my S22 ultra so it can be done, contrary to your wifi only stance. However I can not get my daughter's s22 plus to download the update without wifi, which is why I was on this forum in the first place.

Same... its driving me mad. I keep forgetting to download it at work over WiFi. I have unlimited data and live on my own so just don't have WiFi.
